2019-20 Internationalization Seed Grants Announced

The Office of Global Engagement recently awarded six NC State faculty with 2019-20 Internationalization Seed Grants. These funds — up to $5,000 per grant — promote international partnerships and foster global scholarship and engagement.

Faculty receiving grants often develop joint research proposals, student mobility programs, adjunct appointments and other scholarly activities. Past grants allowed faculty to pursue research and programs ranging from creating an international antimicrobial resistance surveillance program to stream restoration and more. The grantees were selected by the University Standing Committee on International Programs.
